Extraction processes of visuo-orthographic units in written words

Units : Laboratory of Cognition, Language, and Development | ULB099

Description :

The aim of the project is to determine what internal characteristics of words underlie their structuration into visuo-orthographic
units during the early stages of reading. Especially, we examine to what extent word properties such as abstract consonantal
skeleton, orthographic redundancy, or grapheme units influence reading unit perception. At the same time, we assess whether
visuo-orthographic structuration of words is compatible with phonological (e.g., syllables) and/or semantic (e.g., morphemes) units. These
issues are developed in both a developmental perspective (adults/children comparisons) and a neuro-psychological perspective
(investigation of both the time course of processes underlying word structuration, and localisation of the neuronal corresponding
